Daily professional use of the current release VS tool set.
Microsoft anticipates the 15.9.x release(s) will resolve bugs complying
with C++17. Plus, the standard headers will likely change again.
Between 15.7.x and 15.8.x, the VS standard headers use more compile time
if and other C++17 features. The header modifications are quickly found
using the Intel 18.0, update 3, C++ compiler. The Intel C++ compiler
team has been informed and issues filed. How exactly will the changing
VS standard header files compile without C++17 being the 15.9.x default?
Remember, the VS preprocessor is expected to be fully compliant too:
The updated preprocessor is currently under the switch
/experimental:preprocessor until it is fully implemented and
production-ready, at which point it will be moved to a /Zc: switch which
is enabled by default under /permissive- mode.
